Distribution. Captured between sea level and 552 m in elevation during April, July- August, and December in Azua, Barahona, Independencia, Montecristi, Pedernales, Peravia, Santiago, San Cristóbal, and San Juan provinces. Vegetation zones include scattered scrub or pine in grassy areas, and deciduous forests.

Remarks. The largely pale hind tarsomere and terminalia ( Scarbrough, 1997) distinguishes Ommatius hispaniolae from congeners. This lowland species is usually one of the most abundant species in collections.
